Never Forget… Institutionalized Eugenics in America

I originally posted the following information and statement onto my Facebook wall…

"Buck v. Bell: In 1925, Virginia, like a majority of states then, enacted eugenic sterilization laws. Viriginia's law allowed state institutions to operate on individuals to prevent conception of what were believed to be 'genetically inferior' children. Charlottesville native, Carrie Buck (1906 - 1983), involuntarily committed to a state facility near Lynchburg, was chosen as the first person to be sterilized under the law. The U.S. Supreme Court, in Buck v. Bell, on 2 May 1927, affirmed the Virginia law. After Buck, mor than 8,000 other Virginians were sterlized before the most relevant parts of the act were repealed in 1974. Later evidence eventually showed that Buck and many others had no 'hereditary defects.' She is buried south of here." (Department of Historic Resources, 2002)

Buck v. Bell:
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buck_v._Bell

Buck v. Bell, 274 U.S. 200 (1927), is a decision of the United States Supreme Court, written by Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr., in which the Court ruled that a state statute permitting compulsory sterilization of the unfit, including the intellectually disabled, “for the protection and health of the state” did not violate the Due Process clause of the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution. The decision was largely seen as an endorsement of negative eugenics—the attempt to improve the human race by eliminating “defectives” from the gene pool. The Supreme Court has never expressly overturned Buck v. Bell.

Discussing State-Funded Eugenics in California, When Latina Women Were Forcibly Sterilizing for Half a Century

The following correspondence originally took place upon the Facebook wall of family, after they shared my post, “State-Funded Eugenics: For Over Half a Century, California Forcibly Sterilized Latina Women“…

Tammy S.: There were similar programs in the South.

Rayn: Hitler got many of his GREATEST eugenicist ideas about isolating, sterilizing and murdering “undesirables” from America!

These sorts of concepts were being fine-tuned by intellectual elitist control-freaks at places like Cold Spring Harbor laboratory, then promptly instituted legally in this country for over half a century!

State-Funded Eugenics: For Over Half a Century, California Forcibly Sterilized Latina Women

Government Forcibly Sterilized Latina Women Without Their Consent:

(Counter Current News, M. David) Disturbing revelations about a U.S. government program to forcibly sterilize Latina women are now coming out, and the evidence is more damning that previously expected.

The documentary No Más Bebés has compiled a litany of evidence that sheds the light on one of California’s most disturbing secrets, which are reminiscent of Nazi eugenics programs: forced sterilization of Latina women.

My Commentary: Just another case of Government, doing what it does best…

Don’t worry, Statists. Keep shilling for more government. They’ll eventually get around to you.
